Our charity's mission is focused on providing medical equipment for children's hospitals, but our organization is known to draw on its resources to help in humanitarian crises.
Our virtual edition of the "Get Even with Diabetes Run" responds to the challenge posed by the pandemic and lockdown. We wanted to create an event that is accessible to all, open, and still safe for the participants but keep the core ideas behind the run: promotion of a healthy lifestyle and community spirit. We also wanted to raise as much money as possible to aid one of our medical initiatives - a programme that provides free personal insulin pumps for pregnant women with diabetes. Our virtual edition allows anyone who registers on our platform and pays a participation fee of PLN 50 to participate in the race and contribute to the purchase of personal insulin pumps. The last edition of the run allowed us to buy 95 super modern insulin pumps for pregnant women with diabetes.
Overall, throughout this medical initiative, we have purchased 1 776 personal insulin pumps which are available for rent from 38 clinics nationwide.
Anyone can participate in our virtual run - provided that you connect your exercise app with our running platform so that we can count the distance you managed to cover. Last time, you have covered a distance which equals 37 walks around Poland!
